Angel On Earth! :)
My first thought was that every lawyer was a robotic person who only would take a case if a lot of money is involved. David proved me entirely wrong, showing true kindness and compassion to me when my mom was in FDC and I was all by myself at the time. He was very kind to my mom during her trial. A true God-sent angel on Earth! Solved my mom's case with flying colors. Would definitely go back to him if I need help. Thanks So Much for your kindness David! :)

Very Professional
I contacted Mr. Edelstein to help me resolve criminal case I had pending against me from many years ago. I had moved from Miami approximately 15 years ago and had completely forgotten about it. Mr. Edelstein explained to me how he believed he could assist me and resolved the case in a relatively short period of time. I never even had to come to Florida. I would reccomend Mr. Edelstein without hestiation to anyone in need of a criminal attorney.
